An Unofficial Guest Room Reveal-ish

Hey, there, you know I have felt horrible about not sharing the semi-finished guest room with you after you kindly rode the waves of the One Room Challenge with me (as a link-up participant).  So I don’t have the finished pillows or chandelier yet, but I wanted to finally give a little peek around.  The photos aren’t great, but I had a little pocket of time today and I seized it.  I’ll take more time when the final details are in.www.tphblog.comOh my goodness, it is December 19, and I bought those mums a week before Thanksgiving.  The lamps are from Screen Door Antiques that I found when dear Fieldstone Hill Dar and family came to visit me and mine at the cottage.  She can tell you how long I waffled over those lamps…still waffling over keeping them here in the guest room.www.tphblog.comSuper bad photo below, but I want to show you how the cornice boards evened out the uneven height of the window.  I do love how a very homely craft like quilting looks quite modern when framed as a segment.  I’m thinking of you awesome ladies in Gee’s Bend.

www.tphblog.comI did finish the art in time for our Thanksgiving guests.  It was a new idea I had for my ribbon infatuation–so I kinda consider it a rough sketch or prototype.  I like how it turned out on the plywood and look forward to making more and improving the idea.

www.tphblog.comThe rug was in our kitchen (click to see more bad, yellow photos of our kitchen) in the last house, our rancher (click to see TPH’s most visited post and an amazing before and after).

www.tphblog.comThis photo gives you a closer look of the concrete floor finish–so much better than what we were dealing with before.

www.tphblog.comHopefully I’ll have lighting up in the new year.  Then we’ll have a big reveal with a marching band and sky writing.  It’ll be grand.

Until then, I’ll be Christmassing with the family, many who are really sick.  Oh, man, last night my husband and I cleaned up the most epic vomit explosion of our parenting careers.  Let’s just say that I am so happy that we tiled the walls around the boys’ toilet here in the new house.  Gross, why did I tell you that?  Hurry!  Look at this and forget what I just wrote:IMG_7832Marlowe never wastes an opportunity to be irresistible.  I think I know why he likes curling up under the Baby J b-day party tree…

Fun and color, I can’t quit you.

Have a lovely, healthy weekend, friends!


  1. Beeeautiful!!! And that cat is too much! Sully is jealous.

  2. Really love the mix. I don’t often consider red, but you’re definitely making me re-think it! Great lamps, art, everything!

    Love the soft wall painting and the modern red bed. Would have never dreamed to mix and it is wonderful!

  4. Wow, I love the soft blue back wall and the unexpected red bed against it. The rug is a great companion as are the quilt blocks. You are one innovative woman! Well done!

  5. haha, you are funny. mural turned out amazing! I love the new lamps and the bed, obviously. I am still (now and forever) jealous of the amazing bathroom tile. Merry Christmas and get well, kiddies!

  6. Oh my, it looks so beautiful already! The red bed is incredible. I love how it looks against the mural. I can’t wait to see the finishing touches!

  7. Uggh, we’re sick here too, but it’s the flu and it’s my husband and me (not the kids so far, fingers crossed they don’t get it). Your guest room is fab. Might have to book a stay. Hard to pick a favorite element – I think the mural and bed tie for my favorites. Get well soon & Merry, merry to you and yours!

  13. The true spirit of the holiday is to bring joy to loved ones, acquaintances, and strangers alike.

    Analyzing every episode, it can be predicted that the sixteenth one will
    also be interesting. The months of December and January are busy months for many construction recruitment agencies.
